So, my DH has to be away for work (6 hours drive) leaving Mon. morning and arriving home Tues. evening around 11. Last weekend I felt a couple of contractions and was 1 cm dilated at my MW appt. last Tues. Since then, I've had lots of cramps, especially when moving around, but nothing really strong. Thurs. and Fri. nights I started seeing some mucus with brown streaks.
How long can this go on for? I'm worried that I"ll go into labor while DH is away. I do have a doula, but my friends who are to take care of my DD can't get here next week until about 4 1/2 hours after I call them. They are available to stay over the week after. My due date is Sept. 26, but dd came 10 days early, and with GD I'm likely to be induced if I make it to then. Everybody else I know who is willing can only take her on the week-end as they all work.
I'm beginning to freak out. I really want to tell my DH to stay, but this is a project he's been working on for a year and he really needs to be there for the presentation/meeting.
I just have a strong feeling this baby is coming early...
